Trivia

The scene where Agent Keen and Reddington visit the restaurant in Quebec was actually filmed at Schiller's Liquor Bar in the Lower East Side, New York City. The slim mirror on the tiled columns, ambiance, and the unique Men's bathroom sink, with the exposed/hung pipes, are in that restaurant. See more »

Beautifully Written, Beautifully Acted and Beautifully Structured
1 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

Wow. What an absolutely great episode. This series is really finally a new show that shows great promise for an excellent future. This episode and the last were so well written, acted and structured, showing intense moments and at the same time emotional moments.

I love a show with good music, I mean, who doesn't. This show's music is really very good. Very catchy and always fits the moment.

The acting is incredible, especially James Spader, who, I think, will be Emmy worthy. I guess we'll see next year.

Finally, the structure. This episode was very well structured and I could easily understand all stages of the plot. Many TV shows contain very poor structuring and therefore I cannot understand the main point of the plot.

Overall: 10/10 for an intense and surprisingly good episode!
